WWE has a lot of things in motion and they always want to bring in The Rock, but Dwayne Johnson’s schedule is a big issue in that regard. They get The Rock when he’s available at this point, and that means there must be a backup just in case something falls through. Even if The Rock can make a WrestleMania match happen, he might still want to limit any risk involved and remain protected.
There is an idea for The Rock to wrestle Roman Reigns, but that might not happen in a singles match. Johnson might not want to risk injury, but there is an alternative.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there is currently a working idea that The Rock vs Roman Reigns might happen, but it will be in a tag team match and the Usos will be involved as well.
One idea that has been talked about, as the goal is Reigns and Rock in Dallas for the 2022 Mania, is that if concessions have to be made regarding Rock and movies and injury fears, that they do Reigns and an Uso vs. Rock and an Uso, so Rock can be protected from doing too much and it keeps it all in the family with the idea and Rock and Reigns as who is really the tribal chief. Obviously the singles match is the preferred match but any involvement of Rock is preferred over him not doing the show
We will have to see if WWE books this situation. There could be a lot of possibilities there, but The Rock’s name attached to any event will certainly draw a lot of attention, even if he’s competing in a tag team match.
